Country music artist Jake Owen's "Down to The Honkytonk" packs in the country music references! Listen to the new single here!

Country music artist Jake Owen‘s brand new single “Down to The Honkytonk” sends its listeners into a fit of nostalgia. Between the steel guitar and nods to traditional country themes, the Florida native brings us back to the sounds of past country hits of the 1990s.

Enjoy the star’s energetic “Down to The Honkytonk” music video below!

“I have just huge respect for classic country music. I love the sound of a steel guitar. And quite frankly, I love going down to the honky tonks here [in Nashville] on Broadway, and for that matter, honky tonks anywhere around the country,” Owen recently shared with iHeartRadio. “A honky tonk is really just the place where you can go, have some beers with friends and listen to some good country music, and make memories and tell some good stories. And that’s kind of right in my wheelhouse. So that’s why this song, ‘Down to the Honkytonk,’ is one of my favorites off the new record.”

“Down To The Honkytonk” Lyrics 

I got a house, down a backroad
I got a flag on the front porch
I got a dog named Waylon
I got a driveway that needs paving
I got a boat with a two stroke
A couple guaranteed to make you laugh jokes
I got friends in low places
Yeah, life is what you make it

I might not end up in the hall of fame
With a star on the sidewalk with my name
Or a statue in my hometown when I’m gone
Nobody gonna name their babies after me
I might not go down in history
But, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk

I got a girl named Sheila
She goes batshit on tequila
I got a job that gets the job done
I got a loan at the bank, it’s a big one
The only place you might see my name
Is on the wall, for a good time call
I’m a local legend on a Friday night
In a Pabst Blue Ribbon neon light

I might not end up in the hall of fame
With a star on the sidewalk with my name
Or a statue in my hometown when I’m gone
Nobody gonna name their babies after me
I might not go down in history
But, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk

I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk

I might not end up in the hall of fame
With a star on the sidewalk with my name
Or a statue in my hometown when I’m gone
Nobody gonna name their babies after me
I might not go down in history
But, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk

I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
I’ll go down, I’ll go down to the Honkytonk
